FIXLAB: the platform of Medium and Large-scale facilities
The goal of FIXLAB is to provide access for the Cultural Heritage (CH) community to large‐scale facilities that develop and maintain sophisticated state‐of‐the‐art instrumentation for advanced diagnostics and archeometry. Access is offered to researchers in Heritage Science to help address the major questions posed by the materiality of CH artefacts in terms of their genesis, manufacturing processes, alterations, conservation and preservation.
The unique FIXLAB services offered to the CH community embrace:
- advanced state‐of‐the‐art instrumentation;
- dedicated facilities with teams of experts in the field of micro‐analysis of CH artefacts;
- novel developments resulting from IPERION CH joint research activities to progressively improve access;
- development of both new sample‐positioning devices at a micro‐scale and software tools for the integration of imaging data.
